[How it works- Each auction lot will get its own post. As soon as it gets its own post, the auction is live. Once a bit of time has passed, and people really know about Wine for Haiti, lots will go live AND HOT. Every item will got “hot” if bidding reaches retail value.  Once hot, each lot is on a 24-hour cycle, ending at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If a lot goes a full 24 hours, from 10:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., without a new bid, the last bid in the comments wins. If we get into a bidding war, with the same people going back and forth, one day at a time, we will post something in the comments of that Auction Lot and schedule a time to bid to the death, at a time mutually agreeable to everybody involved.]

    What a wonderful idea. Not quite sure how this works. I am hoping that Lot # 52 is open for bids. I would like to join in the bid war. Tell me when and how.

    Congrats Priscilla! I’m too late checking back. I’ll make a donation in any event. Thais was/is a great program. Those in the Finger Lakes have such a big heart.

    I am under the understanding that we had 24 hours to bid once the lot was open. But I see the lot is not yet marked as sold?

    It would actually be more accurate to say “24 hours and I get around to noticing.” The rest of the Palate Press staff is working on the magazine. I am handling the auction myself, so some things just fall to dumb luck. The ultimate goal, of course, is to raise as much for Haiti as we can, so if you want to bid, go ahead. I will close this one this evening at 6 pm Eastern, unless there is a new bid. Fair enough?

    I will also donate $$$ – even if I did miss the deadline extension. Once again, I love the concept. The wineries all have such big hearts.
